New deadline set in teacher plan tussle

Saturday, January 19, 2013 - Updated: 5:49 PM

BUFFALO (AP) -- New York City has already lost out on more than $240 million in state school aid by missing a deadline to adopt a plan to rate its teachers, but hundreds of millions of dollars in additional state and federal funding remain at risk, Education Commissioner John King said Friday.

He threatened to take over control of certain grants should the impasse between the city and its teachers union continue.

While avoiding taking sides, King faulted both for walking away from negotiations before the midnight deadline arrived for the city to submit a teacher evaluation plan.

"My team and I were here up until midnight hoping we would receive the plan," King told reporters during a conference call. "We didn't receive it. We didn't receive it because they chose to walk away from the table with hours to go."
